Challenges of a Rabbit-Snake love match

Even when the Rabbit and Snake seem to be at their easy-going best, their relationship is likely to suffer from a lack of spontaneity and excitement. Both the Rabbit and Snake can be rather passive and not really the kind to take the initiative to plan a quick vacation or an impromptu date. At its worst, this lack of drive may lead the partners to drift away from each other in case they do not find themselves bonded by common values and interests.

The Rabbit and Snake differ in their levels of social disposition and so problems between this couple will probably start over conflicting views on how to spend an evening together. The Rabbit will want to hang out with mutual friends or even go to the theater with a like-minded couple while the Snake partner might have more intimate plans in mind. He/she may want to have a go at playing strip poker with their partner or have an intimate dinner together. Even though the Snake does not shun company as much as the Ox or Rooster, still they are wary of too much social mingling and any way they prefer to keep their own counsel. This deep secretive personality of the Snake man or woman while appearing initially attractive might clash with the open, sociable nature of the Rabbit till the two find they are fighting more and loving less.

Then again the Snake is known for its capacity for intense jealousy. Confronted with the Rabbit’s partner’s popularity among members of the opposite sex and their tendency to respond good-humoredly to flirtatious overtures, the Snake may be goaded to depths of jealousy. This in turn will upset the Rabbit who cannot cope with any unpleasantness or stress in a relationship.

In the end what can save this relationship from breaking apart is an effort on both sides to be more adjusting. This in fact is quite easy for the Rabbit which is a casual, easy-going sign and is capable of getting along with a wide variety of personalities, including a complex one such as the Snake’s. The Snake on the other hand possesses a deeply intuitive nature which can see right through appearances into the heart of a person. Thus the Rabbit’s romantic and essentially loyal nature will be evident to their Snake partner who in turn will respond with the depths of their passion and commitment.
